For the past month, I was working on several custom projects and that including some of the figures.
While back I purchased Indiana Jones figure, but I hated it because it was not articulated enough like the Joe. So I took the entire body of Wild Bill - Since he is a peg warming here - and create the new Indi. Now he is part of the Joe team.
Two weeks ago, I scored 2 packs of Destro and Iron Grenadier, but then I end up with bunch of un-needed Destro. So I decided to create couple new guys, and I called them Iron Grenadier Commander. They take direct order from General Voltar - now I need Voltar. They are my favorite now.
I always like Ice Viper when I was a kid; I was about to use Snow Job for the project but I was not close to what I want. Recently, Snow Serpent is available, so I took the body and turn it into Ice Viper. I was thinking to use Cobra Viper goggles, but since I have this available from FireFly, so there is no need to destroy a Viper for just a goggle. I also noticed another fellow here doing almost the same. That was so cool and coincident. Now I am currently working on Artic Hisstank.

You know, that is a really great use for those extra Destros! I don't think I would have ever thought of doing that myself. Great job!
Those Destro customs are 100% dancing fat kid approved!

Those look INCREDIBLE! Great job buddy.
Thank you for giving me an idea what to do with those extra destros! Don't be suprised if half the guys on Hisstank steel that idea.
(come to think of I also have a spare wild bill......)

Ice Viper was one of my favs too. Great job recreating it. The others rock as well.

another way of making Indiana Jones I used a Breaker Head, Wave 7 Duke Body, removing lower Duke arms and replacing his arms with Indiana Jones figure along with painting upper arms and adding leather vest-jacket and Fedora hat
